0 427

Orange Democratic Party has now kicked off elections of Party officials at grassroots level.

Nairobi Members of the County Assembly have amassed the exercise and out of 17 sub-counties  4 newly elected constituency chairmen are serving MCAs.

There are unconfirmed reports doing round in social media that the Nairobi MCAs were buying the positions of chairmanship at constituency from ODM top brass.

Makongeni MCA Peter Anyule Imwatok is the ODM chairman Makadara sub-county, Joseph Ndonji Umoja 2 MCA is the new ODM chairman Embakasi West.

Kilimani MCA Honorable Moses  Ogeto is the new chairman of ODM party Dagoreti North  constituency.

The MCAs have however, defended themselves saying the process was transparent  and they did not  bribe any official to clinch positions.

“The rumors out there that the MCAs  gave Aladwa 100 thousand shillings  for the positions I don’t know where they are coming from maybe Aladwa can answer that and for me it was a clean and fair process. We had delegates and did a smooth harmonization as was directed by the party election board led by Catharine Muma. The outgoing chair Jack Olonde was forced to step aside because he supported Ben Mutura in 2017 elections instead of party candidate George Aladwa. The delegates then elected me as chairman unopposed, my vice chair is Viwandani MCA hon Mbithi…” he told Ghetto News Radio on phone.

Meanwhile his Kilimani counterpart Moses Ogeto on the other hand defended Aladwa over bribery claims saying the process was smooth, free, fair and transparent.

“Hon Aladwa himself is a candidate how can someone say that he helped us….In Dagoreti North  the exercise was very clear and I didn’t have opponent I was elected unanimously by party delegates… remember we have delegates at ward level and MCAs themselves are delegates I want to ask those disgruntled aspirants to read ODM constitution and structure,’’ Ogeto said.

“Finally I want to thank my party delegates for believing in me as i take over from Hon Arati who moved to Kisii,” Ogeto said.
